Summary
In 1845, Thoreau embarked on a sort of social experiment to live separate from civilization without the traditional luxuries of culture. He was a renowned transcendentalist who believed that simplicity and living within nature could lead him to achieve true happiness and spiritual peace. He constructed a small cabin in the woods on the shore of Walden Pond just outside of Concord, Mass. Ralph Waldo Emerson, his friend, mentor and owner of the property, allowed Thoreau to stay as long as he would do some work on the land. Over the course of about two years, Thoreau recorded his activities, observations and meetings with visitors. He published his writings in an 1854 work titled "Walden." The book was relatively successful but did not achieve its widespread influence and notoriety until after Thoreau's death. Today, it is considered to be a masterpiece of American literature and philosophy and is indispensable in the study of Thoreau and transcendentalism
